"Richard "Dick" Moonlight, former APD detective turned private investigator/massage therapist, believes he killed Scarlet Montana - his illicit lover and wife of his ex-boss, Chief of Detectives Jake Montana. The problem is ... Moonlight doesn't remember what happened!"

This is a page turner that kept me up into the wee hours of the night! The action began from the opening line "Man's life is flashing before his eyes." There's not a dull slow moment in the book so it compelled me to want to sit and devour it; which I did and you will to I am sure!

I really enjoyed the "old school" mystery feel of this. It just had a different edge to it that reminded me of those older type mysteries and I Loved it! The characters were so well developed and detailed that it was easy to jump into the story and feel as if I was involved in the investigations and carrying on's.

I can only imagine the apprehension Moonlight faced with a bullet lodged in his head from a suicide attempt gone bad from four years prior that leaves him facing a possible death at any moment and waking up with bloody cut hands not knowing if he may have played a crucial role in his lovers death. Emotions run high in this fast paced thriller!
